Spend a few hours in the port today. Started with walking in the area and enjoying the fish market. There were sea lions fighting for whatever leftovers the fishermen were returning to the ocean. Boats were coming and going and that kept the kids busy for a while (there were two cruises not far but they were not docked). We... More

Rent a boat for a half day fishing adventure or go visit the sea wolves. They're usually near the guys fileting the fish that comes in from the boats. Nice the walk through during your exercise walk.

We walked all around the port, visited shops, watched the seals, and the fishmongers bring in their catch. It was a pleasant day.

Early in the morning to watch the cruise ships arriving, or late for people watching, or at sundown you will enjoy this area of the city.

This was a very nice place to have lunch or to watch the beautiful sunset. Very nice as everything in Punta, we found ourselves very pleased and relaxed around the town.

A lot of restaurants around, from where you can see a beautiful sunset and have a drink, a nice place to be by the end of the day.

In our trip to South America we visited this famous chic place. We were there before US elections and found the Trump Tower . We didnt know about this place before but our travel agency told us to visit Montevideo, Colonia and Punta del Este in 3 days trip. This was a fantastic experience. The place is so stylish and...

Friendly and beautiful city! Delicious food and walking areas! The sunsets were candy to your eyes and the weather was warm during the day but cooled off at night.

We had a nice trip in PDE. The beaches were very nice and the city is a typical beach town. The price for food there is very expensive. It costs $50-70 for 2 people for just a basic meal with no appetizers or alcohol.

Beautiful place to walk and eat with very good restaurants. Some of them are very expensive but there are others affordable. The sunset in Punta del Leste is an unique experience and this place is very special to see it.
